Over 70% of UK service personnel with alcohol problems do not seek help

A report funded by Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), has estimated that 71% of UK service and ex-service personnel with current or past alcohol problems do not seek help or treatment. Just half of those meeting the criteria for alcohol misuse recognised they had a problem. People who were older or who also reported mental health problems were more likely to seek treatment for their alcohol use.
